Peltz Gallery | Early Career Workshop: Curating Colonialism and Silenced Histories

Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square

Book your place

Are you an early career academic or cultural sector worker? Are you interested in how museums tell stories about artworks and objects?

Join this free, friendly, hands-on workshop on curating colonialism and silenced histories — and get a chance to re-curate the exhibition Paper Cuts. No previous experience is required, only an interest in storytelling.

Spaces are extremely limited: booking is essential.

This event is part of Peltz Gallery's current exhibition Paper Cuts: Art, Bureaucracy, & Silenced Histories in Colonial India

Who gets remembered, and who forgotten? This exhibition examines a collection of works on paper made by British colonialists in nineteenth-century India. Seen in public for the first time, the collection is placed into dialogue with contemporary artworks by Ravista Mehra and Divya Sharma. PAPER CUTS critically reflects on the silencing effect of the colonial archive - and points toward a more equitable future.

25 April - 12 July 2024, 10am-8pm, Mondays to Fridays only.
